    poppler vulnerabilities
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 12.10
    - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 11.10
    - Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 8.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    Applications using poppler could be made to crash or possibly run programs
    as your login if they opened a specially crafted file.
    
    Software Description:
    - poppler: PDF rendering library
    
    Details:
    
    It was discovered that poppler contained multiple security issues when
    parsing malformed PDF documents. If a user or automated system were tricked
    into opening a crafted PDF file, an attacker could cause a denial of
    service or possibly execute arbitrary code with privileges of the user
    invoking the program.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
